You know that structure and function are related, however it can be difficult to reconcile both approaches. Being able to create both structural and functional diagnoses is key to a comprehensive rehabilitation program.We know structure dictates function and vice versa. The way this concept relates to neck and back pathology is crucial to understand, as we explore concepts that reach far beyond the musculoskeletal system considerations.
This home study course will focus on the physiology of the Neck and Back - essentially, how does our patient's structure dictate their function, and how does their function dictate their structure? How can our patient's structures and functions work together for optimal performance and recovery? This course will cover issues related to Spine Structure and Posture, Postural Imbalance, Breathing and the Role of the Diaphragm, and Interconnections in Structure.
Neck and back pain are so multi-factorial, even just from a musculoskeletal perspective. When we begin to consider these diagnoses from a neurological and visceral perspective, it can complicate matters even more. However, these additional perspectives can help simplify as well.
